How much is this worth paying for?

Hi all, recently found a 1992 GTA 5.0 150k miles T-tops and leather needs basically all cosmetic work. The body is straight and interior is clean seats are in great shape for being leather. Just wondering what's a good price to pay for this car?

$2,000 to $2,500 Pictures of it would always help

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

That's exactly what I was thinking. So if I could purchase the car for 2000. it would be a decent deal?

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

$2000 is pretty good, but the big question would be are there any issues with the body kit? Reason I ask it that those pieces are hard to come by in good shape for the 91/92 and I don't know of anyone making reproduction pieces (for the nose anyway). I ran across a nose for a 91/92 TA/GTA/Firebird(with appearance package) that was a NOS piece at the TA Nationals and it was going for $600. If I had the money, I would have bought it as it's the only new one I've seen available. If those are in good shape, then $2k is very reasonable.

Well, the nose has a crack in it and the ground effects in front of both wheels are broken but besides that rest of ground effects are in great shape. I do know that they make the ground effects in front of the wheels reproduction and if the nose isn't salvageable I have a line on a front cover in decent shape for super cheap.

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

I didn't know they started reproducing those lower pieces in front of the wheels........good to know and if you've got access to a better front, then I see it as being a pretty good deal. Best of luck and post some pics when you get it.

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

Well, I was suppose to be picking the car up this evening but seller contacted me and said that the car had been sold so I guess for now I just keep on with restoring my 87'.

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

That's terrible! Did the seller sell it already knowing you were wanting to buy it?

Re: How much is this worth paying for?

That really sucks, but I believe everything happens for a reason, so a better one may be out there for you.
